Mountain Dulcimer by Ear
Singing with the Mountain Dulcimer: The Mountain Dulcimer was, according to historical records, used primarily to accompany songs at home and was an important part of the old-time tradition. We’ll sing a few traditional songs and explore some basic tunings used for singing (DAA, GCC, and others) and make use of the noter as well (bring a noter along – if you don’t have one a popsicle stick would be ideal. This will mostly focus on the melody-drone style of playing.
Feel free (encouraged) to bring a recording device.
